well i did it, my first real attempt on conecting two pieces flush rivet style........overcame my obsticals without leaving the shop........hardest part for me was the bucking up inside a tight spot one handed........the bucks came out nice, and with a bit of elbow grease so did the heads, little bit of 120grit and green scotch brite.........the eye sore hole, not sure yet, i ground the face of my stock sourounding that area before i installed (Ray's advice) case i may get it welded up and retune it......time for a beer........cheers

Looking good Neil. Just a thought if you didn't want to drill and rivet more in the gunnel how about filling the one hole with a rivet with attatching the aluminum plate underneath and using a flex epoxy to secure the rest of the aluminum brace underneath? Maybe.Sikadur Combiflex® Set

Am I missing something here? Are you attempting to fill a tapered hole with a non tapered rivet?

tested my first hole........had too work through a couple issues......rivets wern't long enough after cutting the heads off to fill......drill out first attempt.........tried clipping edges of head, still not quite enough........drill out second attempt.......made a jig too create a taper head to match on the full rivet......success........unfortunatly as carefull as one Darbyville bushwacker can be the original taper was now a bit off, but dang close.....the buck came out ok....hopefully the next attempts will go sweet.......shake your heads as you may, i am still learning with what resources i have........:hand:

Ahh... I see now. With the rivet for comparison, that looks pretty close. That'll look great on the gunnel. Have you decided what to do about the hole yet?

How deep are you making the countersink on the show face? I might be missing something, but the empty hole on the left looks like there wouldn't be enough to keep it from pulling through. A 'real' flush head is probably twice the diameter of the rivet shaft.


the hole on the left is from some previous drilling, not 3/16........i made the countersink pretty close too double........it was just a test........was just cutting the heads off a couple rivets and using the tails just see how it would work......wish i had that flush set "bolt" back on Oscar, worked sweet.....i did about 10 flush heads with the end of a lag bolt, this one with the wider flater face makes a huge difference..........
